THE SHRINK SAYS: "Sandi's shoes say that she has a warm, serene, and dependable personality. Her shoes have a classic style-- and so does she. In fact, Sandi's shoes were once her grandmother's, which shows that she cares about family. As a friend and girlfriend or wife, she is incredibly giving and loyal. She may be the target of other women's envy-- her shoes definitely are! But their simplicity suggests she is not arrogant."
THE SHOE GURU SAYS: "This is a woman who knows herself very well. Every single heel has the exact same height and silhouette. They also fall into a color family: browns, greens, rusts, reds, with one gold-metallic pair--for a party, I bet. Sandi is comfortable in her own skin and knows what she likes when she sees it. Every one of her shoes sports at least a two-and-a-half inch heel, which means she's sexy, self-assured, and not afraid to tower!"
THE AVERAGE GUY SAYS: "My guess is that Sandi is 20-something and broke. If she had money, why would she have to wear old shoes? But she looks like my type of girl--I bet she wears jeans and heels to go out in. She probably works in advertising or design, because people in those industries are usually fun and willing to experiment with their style." --Andy
SANDI RESPONDS: "The experts were surprisingly accurate. Dr. Kase is right--women stop me all the time to ask where I got my shoes. My grandmother gave me 30 pairs of her shoes a couple of years ago, and acquiring them changed the way I think about shoes. They have a sense of history and make me wonder what my grandmother was doing in them when she last wore them. I'd love to pass them down to my own daughter or granddaughter one day. My clothes are rough-and-tumble (jeans and tank tops), so I let my shoes dress up the outfit. I was shocked that Andy guessed my job, but he was off on age and money. Dressing creatively is very important in my industry, and my shoes help, since you won't see them on anyone else.
